The name “Stagecoach Village” probably brings the Wild West to mind – after all, it resembles a small Western town – but the shopping center has everything from French antiques to Navajo textiles, and some new businesses.
Un Jour En France opened at the Village in September 2015. Owners Isabelle and Richard Martin’s dream project began in their hometown of León, France, where Isabelle collected antiques as a hobby. The couple fell in love with Arizona’s scenery and decided to open a store in Cave Creek that specializes in French antiques. Isabelle’s favorite items? Her “old ladies,” huge wooden armoires. “The big one is 200 years old,” she says. “She could tell many stories, I think.”
Village Coffee & Crêperie is another new addition that imports European culture to the Wild West. Russia native Marina Matatov uses her grandmother’s crêpe recipe and her own culinary savvy to concoct sugary takes like lemon zest and savory varieties like the “Pesto” crêpe.
Blue Sage Gallery sells primarily Native American textiles, paintings, furniture, jewelry and vases. Its bestsellers are Navajo textiles and vintage Native American jewelry. Ortega’s Indian Market also sells Native American and Southwest-themed furniture, jewelry, artwork and gifts. Owner David Ortega particularly likes Native American jewelry, ranging from delicate earrings to flashy turquoise-beaded necklaces.
